We had a great time—these 12 women were so much fun and inspiration! The location and food were the best. The retreat couldn’t have been better! I learned a lot and completed a quilt top for my friend Ellie-- This quilt has been a while in the making! Ellie approached me about making a quilt for their motorhome bed as she didn’t like the bed coverings that came with the Phaeton. Ellie picked one pattern and fabric and I made a prototype for myself using that pattern. We decided that wall hanging pattern with added borders would not work as a bed quilt so back to the drawing board. Ellie was in a quilt store, happened to know the woman who worked there from their days in Colorado and the two of them picked another pattern and more fabric. I pieced the quilt this weekend and both Ellie and myself are very pleased! Borders will still need to be added and I will then machine quilt it. This Evening Star is going to be beautiful!
We enjoyed one last delicious brunch and then began the process of packing up and loading the vehicles. One last stop at the Washoe Quilt Shop and we were all on our way home.
It was so good to see Michael and Emmi. Mike is feeling OK, still very sore but doing pretty good.
